The practical application of Virtualization through various Cloud Computing Services are growing. From Medical Research to Agriculture, various approaches through Cloud Computing Services has been made by different companies.
We have discussed about Software as a Service (SaaS), Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS), Platform as a Service (PaaS) and other various as a service like DaaS, XaaS etc. In this article we will see how these theory of Cloud Computing is actually used.
What Cloud Computing approach or level is generally used
Obviously it is the Software as a Service of Cloud Computing that is used mostly for Cloud Computing service approaches, but PaaS, DaaS and even IaaS is used as well.
Let us see how Cloud Computing Services is applied in various Fields
Backup and Cloud Computing : By paying a fixed monthly fee customers will can receive storage and bandwidth for backup and recovery. This is helpful for backing up any website or important data.
Cloud Computing in Office : Cloud applications are becoming more common for usage in the office like DaaS (Desktop as a Service) or SaaS. Cloud Computing has opened the opportunity in reduction of licensing costs.
e-Governance : Not all Government sectors are yet ready to deploy Cloud Computing, but several field trials and pilot projects are running to communicate a geographically difficult to reach area of a country with the capital.
Cloud Computing in agriculture : In agriculture, cloud services are increasingly being used on a highly available, virtual server system from external providers. Access is via a secure Internet connection via VPN client.
Medical Research : Huge work is going on to use Cloud Computing more effectively in Medical Science. There are brands who exclusively gives services for Medical field only.
Cloud Computing in Education : We have already written the possibilities and the applications.
Cloud Computing in Research Field : From backing up the working data to collaboration, anything has been much easier than before. Even few years ago, 5 years hard worked data loss was common due to physical damage or hard disk failure. Storage and Backup application provided by Cloud Computing automatically back up the data without manual intervention.
Thus Cloud Computing has lot of usages and can be extended too. Still, several issues has not been solved (like privacy, security), that might need time to be solved. With more usage, the cost of Cloud Computing Services will be reduced as well.
